We recently landscaped around our house, and I truly thought the shaded north side of our home would be the hardest place to find flowers for. However, I did my research and found lots of beautiful flowering plants to thrive in shade areas that get less than 2 hours of direct sunlight per day. In fact, we have a larger variety of flowers on our shady side than on any other side of the house! These are my picks for the best flowering shade plants.
As someone who loves the warmth of summer, learning to appreciate the beauty of autumn is a bit easier when the season feels more like spring! Early fall has been lovely. The air is warm, our flowers are still blooming, and even the mums I picked up from the farmer’s market look like they are welcoming spring. Despite my love for the warmer seasons, I am still really looking forward to seeing all these leaves change color!
I loved every minute of our second summer in our farmhouse. I am always sad to see summer fade away. I crave the warmth and brightness it brings to us each year. I’d walk around in a little bubble of summer all year round if I could! This year brought us wildflower surprises, gave us amazing summer storms, and showed us the beauty of a sea full of golden wheat. I’m already looking forward to what next summer brings!
My sweet Maisie is one of my favorite finds from Antique Farm House (aff. link) and she looks right at home among our daisies.
